Anne of Green Gables Museum is at 4542 Hwy. 20. The Anne of Green Gables Museum at the beautiful Campbell Homestead is dedicated to the life and works of Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of “Anne of Green Gables.” The house was built in 1872 by her aunt and uncle, and the scenery at the site inspired the places she wrote about, like the Lake of Shining Waters. She was married July 5, 1911, in the parlor.
A bookcase with glass doors brings to mind Anne's enchanted bookcase description from the novel. There also is a collection of the author's belongings, including a patchwork quilt. Visitors can take a carriage ride led by a gentleman resembling her character of Matthew. The peaceful route traverses the grounds with its gardens and lake; longer trips venture farther out and may include silver birch tree stands, rolling hills, fields and farms, and a beautiful beach.
Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
